Patient Events

Patient events serve many purposes.

Gatherings are a positive, casual way for ACC survivors and their supporters to connect and learn about new research advances. Fundraising events can be a great way to meet other survivors and their families while raising money for ACC research. Listed below are a number of patient events hosted by ACCRF and other ACC organizations in 2020.

Due to the current situation with COVID-19, most live patient events and gatherings have been canceled or postponed. For now, upcoming events are mostly virtual:
